The White Stripes It is one of those bands that for more years that pass, remain in the memory of the fans. The duo made up of Jack White and Meg White He became one of the musical standards of the first decade of the 2000s, all thanks to his peculiar style inclined towards blues-rock.

The White Stripes are still valid

It seems like yesterday that we were enjoying Jack’s lofty riffs and Meg’s powerful drums. Time passes so fast that one does not realize, for example, that the band broke up a decade ago. Earlier this February, it was 10 years since the iconic duo announced their disbandment. But the memory is still here, in his music and in the occasional posthumous release.

For example, Third Man Records (Jack White’s label) have shared new videos like the one that was released last November for “Apple Blossom”. But that was only a little taste to warm up engines towards the release of their first greatest hits album that came out in December … because the surprises are not over.

At the same time, as Consequence Of Sound points out, Nigel Godrich began to outline what would be his great show of musical presentations From The Basement.

The band came to Godrich’s ‘basement’ in that year to open the show. Jack and Meg got ready to play some tracks from their newly released album, leaving us great interpretations of “Blue Orchid”, “As Ugly as I Seem”, “Red Rain” and some covers of Captain Beefheart What “Party of Special Things to Do”.
